Diner Reviews
  • "The Southwest Bistro restaurant was a mixed dining experience. The service and atmosphere were fine. Except they did not enforce the "no smoking within 15 feet of the door" policy even though we were outside. The cigarette smoke and even a cigar smoke was a bit disappointing, but didn't ruin out mood. The bucket of fries we got for our son was delicious. And both my Sliders and the Ceviche were very good. Other than the atmosphere, I'm not sure we'll be back. The $15 valet parking seemed extreme."

  • "Had a lovely brunch with 3 other guests. Some of us got the breakfast buffet, some ordered off the lunch menu. Nice selection, very tasty, fantastic service. Would go to again!"

  • "Although this restaurant is surrounded by many other restaurants downtown, the food is still good and the view of town lake can't be beat."

  • "This wasnt what I was expecting when booking this restaurant. I am a very picky eater and this was not to my liking at all."

  • "It didn't work out on this special occasion. I probably won't go back but maybe someone else would have a better experience than I did."

  • "Went to this place on valentines day because it was the only reservation I could get. It was $50 for a three-course meal and so I was expecting high quality food. It ended up being just average, the steak wasn't impressive, way too much fat and the flavor was bland. I could have gotten better at Outback Steakhouse... The deserts tasted like they had been sitting out for a while. Wouldn't recommend this place for how much you spend."

  • "I had the opportunity to take my wife out for lunch at SWB. The food was excellent and the view of downtown Austin and Lake Austin was beautiful. The service was excellent and I would highly recommend dinning at this location. The prices were very reasonable."

  • "When I think about Thanksgiving the first thing that comes into my mind is Food, then Family and Friends to share it with and then finally hoping the where will be the right atmosphere to make it all fun. My family and friends came to the Southwest Bistro for Thanksgiving and got not only good food but we got seated at an excellent table away from the crowds with a great few of the whole event. The food was wonderful, the ambiance good, and the wait staff excellent. We left rubbing our bellies and in a great mood."

  • "Unfortunately, we didn't even get to keep the dinner reservation due to an absence of free parking at the hotel. We pulled into an empty and open parking lot in front of the hotel (open gate, no attendant), and as we were walking to the door, the attendant came out of the hotel to say it was an employees lot only. Parking for the restaurant patrons was in the (paid) garage some distance away, or by valet. We didn't have the time to search for parking as part of our dinner plans, as we had to get to the theater in an hour as well. Sorry we didn't get to try this restaurant."

  • "There were three or four bats flying around inside the restaurant. Our server dismissed it as normal saying, "I haven't been hit by one yet." Unfortunately we didn't get great service and they charge $7 for chips and salsa. I understand this is a nice place, but that is just ridiculous. Make that free and people may splurge on dessert or a nice appetizer."

  • "good food, excellent staff, great new parking garage, fantastic view of the city in the winter months when trees don't block view!"

  • "A window view of Lady Bird Lake, the Congress Avenue Bridge and the famous bats flying by at dusk makes the Hyatt the perfect place for entertaining out-of-town guests."

  • "Nothing remarkable here. Just good service and unimaginative food in a hotel restaurant. I wouldn't cross the river for it, but it is convenient and spacious in the Hyatt. This night the server did go an extra mile to find a particular wine for my boss."

  • "Although we were there on a holiday, the place was empty and the service a bit slow for them having not many customers. Food was pretty much typical of a major hotel dining room--uninspiring but good enough to eat. The view of Town Lake is pretty good."
